Join the team that runs the best underground adventures in New Zealand.

There are 4 openings available for Nov 2019.

We are the home of the phenomenal Lost World; Haggas Honking Holes; St Benedicts Caverns; TumuTumu ToObing and others.   If you’re successful, you will be stepping into a tight team; a professional but relaxed family-style company that has been operated by the founder for over 30 years.

We were the first serious-adventure company to run out of Waitomo, innovative; boundary stretching and with a wicked sense of humour.  Some of our guides have been with us for almost 20 years. We take our job very seriously; giving people life changing experiences and ensuring their safety is paramount every day.

Waitomo Adventures is a seven day a week operation, meaning you will need to be available to work a rostered shift that includes weekends.  Along with this you need be flexible and adaptable.  A love for the outdoors: a good base level of fitness and being patient with people is a must.

Health and Safety is super important to us; there’s pre-employment and ongoing drug testing so only apply if you know you will pass this on an ongoing basis.

Prior experience is necessary – Appropriate qualifications include NZOIA Cave1, preferably Cave2


Skills Active L4 in Outdoor Leadership or (ideally) L5 in Cave Guiding.

Essential attributes include a positive attitude, being on time and having a natural inclination to contribute to the team.
